If you have had a test such as a blood test or a smear test, the doctor or nurse will advise you when the result is likely to be available. The doctor will leave a message with the receptionist which may be that the result is normal and no action needs to be taken or you may need to collect a prescription or make an appointment to discuss the result with you.
Telephone the surgery after 14:00 for test results as the telephones are less busy at this time of the day and we have staff available who will be able to help you with your query.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
Please bring samples to the surgery before 11:00 to ensure they reach the laboratory on the same day.
